In brief: Neuron discharge
Seizures are of many types and result from incoordinated neuron discharges.
They can be focal without loss of consciousness or more severe with loss of consciousness as well as uncontrolled motor movements.

In brief: Brain hyperactivity
A seizure is an event that occurs when brain cells or neurons become overly active.
Another way of describing this is that there is a "short" or inappropriate surge in the electrical activity of the brain.
